Hope for the Nations has been in partnership with "Hogar de Amor y Protecciòn al Niño, AC", a ministry out of the church "Grupo Amor" in Colima, Mexico, since 1996. They have a well-established group of homes attending to the needs of children at risk in three different states. At the present time, there are 10 homes with another one under construction, that care for the needs of over 150 children, with the ages of the children ranging from new born to young men and women, completing their university education. In general, married couples, filling the role of house parents, run the homes with other staff and volunteers as helpers. In the State of Colima, we have seven different homes along with another home as well in the city of Palmarito, Puelba.

Casa Matriz ( March 1993)
In the Spring of 1993, Hogar de Amor Y Protección al Niño, bought its first house and moved the twelve children that were in a rented home into this building, which had previously been a boys orphanage. After building a two-storey addition, the home has the capacity to care for up to 44 children, ages 6-12 years old. From this home, children move on to one of our homes for teen boys or teen girls.
Casa Famoso (August 2009)
This home is part of a two-house project called “Las Golondrinas,” with a second house to be built in 2011, on an adjoining vacant lot that was bought with the house. This home is smaller in size and more family-oriented in that it will house sibling groups that we know will be with us for an extended period of time. The home opened with a family of seven children and we will add another family or two, to a maximum of 10 to 12 children.
Casa Tecoman (August 2009)
This home is small and family oriented, made up of sibling groups that we know will be with us for an extended period of time. It is located in Tecoman, a city about a 45 minute drive from Colima. This home opened with a family of five children and we will add another family or two, to a maximum of 10 to 12 children.
Casa La Familia
Hogar de Amor y Protecciòn al Niño took over responsibility for this home from another organization in the year 2005. It was located in a rented facility in the city of Ciudad Serdan, Puebla. We have since built a new home in the city of Palmarito, Puebla, which the children have already moved into. There is still finishing work to do on the main floor and construction needed to finish off the second level. There are currently 28 children in this home from babies to older teens, both boys and girls. Some of the children have grown up in the home and it is the only family they have ever known.
This home is specifically for sibling groups of children. The focus of this home is to provide a stable family environment for children while their parents are unable to care for them. This home has 16 children who will stay in this home and not move on when they become teenagers, but will stay until they are ready to go out on their own.
Casa Cuna Babies (March 1998)
Casa Cuna is focused on caring for children aged 0-6 years old. This home has the capacity for up to 25 children. When the children start elementary school, they will move over to either the Casa Matriz or the Casa Leonel. Both homes are located on adjoining properties to the Casa Cuna.
